Well, the time is rapidly approaching for the release of Aion. I thought I would give you folks a look at what I will be using to play the game. Now, I am not talking about my PC (although I might post my specs later) but the keyboard and mouse that I use. Both are awesome and I have yet to find anything better than the combination.
This is the keyboard I use, its by Zboard and is, by far, the best gaming keyboard I have ever used. Though it looks large it’s only about 1/2 inch bigger than most keyboards. They have moved around the layout to reduce the standard keyboard size, which enabled them to add the gaming pad on the left without making the keyboard much larger.
As you can see on the close up shot, the Merc has a lot of buttons that are well-spaced and within easy reach. The keyboard is comfortable and there is an easy to use Macro and keybinding software included. With the amount of buttons needed for modern MMOs the Merc is awesome.
The mouse I use is probably much more familiar to the average player, it’s the Logitech G5 Gaming mouse. I have tried the Razer mice but they are all too low sitting for me and do not feel comfortable. The G5, on the other hand, is a higher mouse and not so low slung, which is perfect for me. The G5 also has quite a few programmable buttons that I use for various things.
Both of these together mean I never have to click anything on my screen. Nearly everything is hot-keyed which makes quick moving PvP and fast paced PvE much easier.
So, what kind of gear are you folks taking to war?
